Built on Humble Beginnings
The PETstock story began in regional Victoria, Australia, in 1991 when the Young family took ownership of a small rural store called Ballarat Produce. It wasn’t until 2002 and 11 stores later that the PETstock franchise was born. More specifically, it was born in a shed surrounded by animals, hay and three wise men…brothers David and Shane Young, and long term team member Rod McGregor. It was Rod who gave the gift of the PETstock name, clever enough to recognise that the words ‘pet’ and ‘stock’ encompassed everything about the business in one short word. In 2015 a chapter was added to the story when we ventured across the Tasman to picturesque Auckland, to offer our unique brand to New Zealand pet parents.
Today, PETstock remains a 100% family owned and operated company, built on fun, family values and providing 'good ol' fashioned’ customer service that you just don’t seem to get as often anymore. It's for this reason that, not only do our team love coming to work every day, our customers know they’re going to be treated like one of the family and receive the highest quality products, services and advice.
In addition to being pet lovers, our team members are industry experts. We know, because we've found them specifically and continue to train them to be their best. PETstock people understand that you’re not shopping for your dog, cat, bird, fish or lizard ... you’re shopping for your buddy, your best mate, your family members.
